Stephanie van der Lubbe

Research Fellow

Since April 2023, Stephanie is a data scientist at National University Health System at NUS.

In 2019, I finished my PhD in theoretical chemistry at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam under the supervision of Prof. Dr. CĂ©lia Fonseca Guerra. During my PhD, I studied the nature of weak molecular interactions by using density functional theory (DFT) in the framework of Kohn-Sham molecular orbital theory. After my PhD I stayed one more year in Amsterdam as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Dr. F. Matthias Bickelhaupt, studying chemical bonding in transition metal complexes. During my time at the VU, I have been a teaching assistant for Quantum Chemistry, Advanced Computational Chemistry, and Molecular Principles courses, which I enjoyed a lot.

I am interested in using computational chemistry for green energy solutions by understanding and predicting molecular properties on an electronic level. In my free time, I am learning Brazilian Portuguese. I also love reading, going for walks, traveling and photography.
